Independent monthly print publication and website (established 17 years) for English-speakers living in France seeks sub-editor with strong French language skills (although all writing is in English, a lot of interviewing/research is in French). Some reporting and research work too (in French). Working in a tight-knit editorial team (four editorial members including yourself plus remote freelancers), you will be able to identify stories relevant to the readership, oversee and write daily news online as well as liaise with contributors and sub-edit and finalise pages for monthly print in InDesign.
We are looking for motivated person to advance what we do - you must be able to speak and understand French well (to the level of carrying out interviews and sometimes complex research in French) and have several years’ experience of sub-editing, ideally, on regional newspapers in the UK.
In-depth knowledge of living in France (not tourism but everyday life involving the education, healthcare, working systems) is a big advantage.
Strong time-management and multi-tasking skills are important as is attention to detail.
Office based in Monaco, a short train ride from Nice. Possibility of remote working for right candidate.
